I love trees because…
“Of their determination to live, grow, produce and harbor life” – Matthew Scoggins
“They make me feel peaceful and happy” -Betsy Valle
“Like people, they feel, grow, change with the seasons, develop their own roots, and have so much potential to branch out and become individuals” – Crystal Miller
Celebrate all the reasons we love trees at an Arbor Week Photography Show Friday, April 9th, from 6 pm to 8:30 pm, at the Concordia Neighborhood Community Room at McMenamin’s Kennedy School, 5736 N.E. 33rd Ave.
Enjoy beautiful photographs from the students of our recent class, Photographing Your Urban Forest. Meet and mingle with these budding photographers and other tree lovers including Neighborhood Tree Stewards, Concordia Tree Team members and Urban Forestry Commission members.
This is a free event sponsored by Portland Parks and Recreation with generous donations from writer, photographer and instructor Bob Langan and Pro Photo Supply. The photographs will be for sale with all proceeds going toward tree planting projects in the Concordia neighborhood.
